So Saucy....

Ah The Tomato!

Well we had received a bunch of tomatoes from friends.
(we still had quite a few left-over tomatoes, even after filling our sink, pictured above.)
So on Saturday my mom decided to put them to use.
We canned tomato sauce!
For pizza, lasagna, spaghetti...etc.

Above you can see all the spices added. I was the official mixer-girl. Although I had other unofficial titles, such as tomato-retriever, spice-dumper, and labeler, among other things.

This is the finished product. Turned out well from what I can see. Since I haven't actually tasted it since cooking....was fun though. The house smelt great after too; smelt a lot like when you make salsa.

Now, as much as I'd love to know how your house smelled after making the sauce, the analogy of making salsa isn't exactly helpful. Interesting post though. I love a good tomato sauce. Penné pasta and delicious tomato sauce is my favourite thing to eat when I'm feeling a bit...Italian.

I'm sorry you've been deprived and have never assisted in the making of salsa ;P. I've been eating homemade salsa probably twice a week lately...

Perhaps a more useful analogy would be, "like the smell of a tomatoe's heart before it's mushy death scene with garlic, and its hot rival a pepper." Better? ^_~

Ah, see, the tomato's heart is a better analogy. I can totally understand the smell you experienced now. I once witnessed a wrestling match between garlic, pepper, and tomato. The garlic won, because he smelled so bad, nobody wanted to get near him. Reminds me of someone I know....*cough* Kayla *cough*
